Your Donation Saves Lives!
We count on your donations to continue our life-saving work. As a non-profit organization with no paid staff members, our dedicated volunteers work tirelessly on behalf of local animals. And our efforts are paying off. Our innovative programs have been credited with reducing the number of animals who are euthanized at our local animal control facility. Our dream is that one day, no adoptable animals will be killed in area shelters. We thank you for helping us realize this dream.Visit the donation page to see where your money goes.

THE PITCH:  Our Walk For Paws participants deserve the coolest T-shirt possible.  Use your talent to make that happen by designing a great T-shirt for our Walk For Paws


WHO CAN ENTER:  Anyone and Everyone


THE DEADLINE:  May 1, 2022 Midnight EDT


THE WINNER:  Will be chosen by the Walk For Paws Committee


THE PRIZE:  The satisfaction of seeing your design worn by hundreds of Walk For Paws participants, recognition on our web site (or enjoy your anonymity if you prefer) plus 5 free t-shirts. 


THE THEME:  The event is a Walk, Festival, and Party, to benefit animals so you could take that in a literal direction. Or not. We admit to occasionally having a funky, off-the-wall view of things (hey, we have to stay sane somehow) so design creativity is encouraged and appreciated. 




T-shirt color can be any stock color.


Use as many print colors as you like, but it helps to have an alternate rendition using fewer colors. (We aren’t rich, so the number of colors we can use depends entirely on how generous our t-shirt donor is feeling at any given moment.) 


The design should contain the words “Animal Advocates” and “Walk For Paws”.


Enter as many designs, or versions of a design, as you want.
